2007 Beneteau First 10R Description

To develop a fast, fun, facile competitor was the challenge that Farr Yacht Design and Beneteau shared in the development of this new First 10R. Beneteau called on Bruce Farr to give the First 10R a really revolutionary hull - both stable and powerful, with a large bowsprit forward allowing big spinnakers to be carried to advantage when reaching. A real winner's profile.

2007 Beneteau First 10R Standard Features

Hull and its structural grid are infused in one operation for a better strength/weight ratio, overall reduction in weight, and optimal weight control.
Glass fibre/balsa/synthetic resin composite.
Strengthened pressure points (keel, rudder, chain plates, deck line) reinforce the structure.

Constructed by a closed molding injection system
(glass fibre, balsa, synthetic resin sandwich) for better strength/weight ratio, finish & optimal insulation.
All areas of working and manoeuvring on deck are treated with a ‘Picot’ non-skid finish.
Solid reinforced areas are constructed at points under the deck fittings (winches, tracks, chain plates, cleats).

The hull/deck joint is secured in three ways: mechanically attached to the hull by screws fixing the teak toe rail; bonded to the hull (polyurethane adhesive) to guarantee better quality; and finishing joint guarantees watertightness of bonding

Cast iron fin w/torpedo shaped lead bulb on bottom hardened w/antimony to lower the center of gravity.
To increase life, keels are given an anti-corrosion treatment & improved finish before assembly, using epoxy based coatings and paint. The keel is fitted to the hull with high-resistance bonding as well as a system of bolts and stainless steel backing plates.
